Very friendly staff, spotless and comfortable room, walls looks impressive, concrete walls, some parts smooth and other parts rough. Close walking distance to Chinese restaurant and just wandering around the town. Would recommend it to all.

Remarkably comfortable outback motel. Spotlessly clean with comfortable beds and excellent free WiFi. The interior walls are formed of concrete panels, some rough cast, with the characteristic red soils providing a fascinating decor (and superb soundproofing) Staff were extremely helpful. The motel is near the town centre, but far enough away to be safe and quiet.

I arrived on 8 July 2014 at the Mud Hut Motel after a 8.5 hour drive and received a friendly and smiling welcome. My room was clean, neat and comfortable. (My own pillow stayed in my car overnight which does not happen that often.). I hope to be able to stay here on my return trip. Side story: a stone... More

Coober Pedy is one of my favourite Outback towns and we have stayed at the Mud Hut Hotel many years ago. We arrived on spec on a public holiday evening to a very courteous, knowledgeable and helpful man on reception. Hotels take note: staff are everything! Our double room was perfect, clean, spacious with all the mod cons, cups with... More

My partner, our 5 month old and I stayed here for a one night stopover. I really can't fault the place. Reception staff were wonderful. Our room was large with modern fittings and presented immaculately. We also found the complex to be extremely secure- one way in and out and security cameras fitted throughout the complex. The in room information... More

I stay here once a month for business. The service is always at a high standard and personalised. The rooms are clean and the entire property is well maintained. Even when I arrive early they have accommodated me seamlessly. Great location, close to everything.
